A rich world-class education in languages and cultures
Hello! I am a first-class languages graduate from the University of Cambridge, providing translations from French, Spanish and Catalan into English.
I have a BA in Modern and Medieval Languages which involved:
- French, Spanish and Catalan language, translation, linguistics, history and literature.
- An extensive research project on French literary translation.
- An Erasmus placement at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid in Spain where I studied history and French and Catalan language.
More recently I completed an MPhil (Master’s Degree) in European, Latin American and Comparative Literatures and Cultures where I studied:
- Paleography (manuscript studies).
- The history and theory of gender.
- A 30,000-word independent research project on travel in seventeenth-century French women’s writing.
Cambridge is a rigorous learning environment which means I am used to being under time pressure, working independently and carrying out thorough research before undertaking a task.
Experience in a professional translation setting
I have previously worked as a Translation Intern and Assistant Project Manager at the translation agency Raptrad Sud Ouest in Toulouse, France.
Here my main roles were translation, machine translation post-editing and proofreading from French into English, and I also learnt the importance of meticulously researching a text’s subject field before translating.
I carried out project management tasks and quality control checks on translated documents which meant having a very keen eye for detail!
Proficiency in various CAT tools
I currently own and am confident using:
- Trados Studio (CAT tool)
- Cafetran Espresso (CAT tool)
- Microsoft Office
I have also previously used X Bench, XTRF and Across (CAT tool) but do not currently have access to these as a freelancer!
